You only get to see an incompetent nurse practitioner, unless you wait twice as long to see a doctor that doesn't really speak English. I was there for three hours...

Really awful stressful experience- over an hour wait just to see the psychiatrist. The waiting room was loud and uncomfortable and the staff sit behind a closed window so you have to knock to get their attention. Front desk staff isslow, rude, and disorganized. I wouldn't come back if it were easier to find folks who take my insurance.

Dianna and Dr. Fernandez listened to my issues and were able to help me in a timely and professional manner. The desk staff was also very kind and accommodating. Thank you all! Will absolutely refer if asked for a mental health professional recommendation.

Terrible experience here. Never saw the same person. The PA and the dr kept changing my prescriptions and dose seemingly only to make it necessary for me to keep coming back every few weeks. Wait time was always TERRIBLE! I waitedover an hour and a half for my last appointment there AND in the process my parking meter expired and my car was booted in their parking lot. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY... go to literally ANYONE ELSE!

He's indifferent and hard to talk to, didn't put in any effort to get to know me, see what my issues were, barely asked any questions. I left his office feeling way worse both times I visited.

Only seems to want to give out prescriptions once a month so that you have to come in, and he can bill your insurance. Terrible inter-physician communication and if you need any part of your record for another doctor, prepare to wait weeks for it.

Dr. Fernandez is a pleasure, however his reception staff is rude and incredibly unhelpful - there have been several instances wherein I've asked them for assistance and I'm given a "not my problem" attitude. They lack the understanding and care that is crucial for a mental health clinic.

I have had three sessions with Dr. Fernandez so far and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a psychiatrist in the area. There is usually a short wait time. My only complaint would be that the check in areahas a sliding window you have to knock on in order to sign in. It's a bit awkward and makes the process a impersonal. Other than that, I highly recommend not only the doctor but the PA is AMAZING. She's very personalble and makes you feel very comfortable.

I've been to two in-person appointments and am now waiting for my one phone appointment. My two in-person appointments took approximately 10 minutes each. Considering this was the first time I'd ever been to a psychiatrist, I was hoping forsomething a little more thorough. One associate asked me a few basic questions, but Dr. Lino Fernandez spent no time at all trying to get to know me. He prescribed me medication with close to no explanation or reassurance and did not give me time to ask any questions before he put pen to pad. The phone appointment has been even more disappointing. An hour after my scheduled appointment time, I was forced to call in an reschedule after they failed to contact me. They are now an hour late for the rescheduled time. I will never go to this doctor again, and I would not recommend his practice to anyone. Find someone, anyone better.

This was my first visit at this office. I was very impressed with the thorough initial visit. The PA was nice and attentive, and willing to help me understand my symptoms. Her office was clean and cozy, with a sound machineso no one else could hear us. Then I was transferred to the doctor, who was kind and knowledgeable. Overall a great visit, planning on returning.

It took 45 minutes to finally be seen and the room they took me into was filthy with hair all over the floor. I was kind of grossed out. I did speak to the doctor and someone else and that washelpful, but overall it 50/50. I may go back, but i'm going to keep looking for another doctor in the meantime just in case.

The secretary was extremely rude. I have been in mental health offices before, and due to privacy there usually was not a sign in sheet. There was no sound at all and I was not sure if this was a solopractice or an office staff was there. So I took a seat. ~15 minutes later another client came in. When I told the secretary that I had been waiting there she did not believe me as I had not signed in. She made me wait until after the following appointment and after a meeting with a rep. I waited about one hour and 20 minutes.

My first office visit I waited from 3pm to 5pm. They had to reschedule me the first time. The insurance wasn't verified prior to the visit and the charge me a high amount . They explaines its my out of networkdeductible. But even then my charge has never been so much. I just found out they charged for psychiatric diagnostic evaluation with medical services everytime to get more bang for their buck. My previous doctor only charged my doctor visit. I didn't request any evaluation. I hate hidden fees causing me to pay 4x the amount I would ever pay.

Great doctor but I am not coming back due to the extremely unprofessional staff. I've gone in three times at this point and have never had a good experience with them. I've had to wait hours while they took patients withappointments that were after me, even the time I came in and was clearly in distress. They close the window to the waiting room and make it clear that you are an inconvenience on them. Recently I called asking a question that needed to be answered as soon as possible and was assured I would get a call back by the end of the day, but of course that call never came so I am currently looking for a new doctor. Overall I'm upset that I have to do this because the psychiatrist is fantastic and has already helped me a lot but unfortunately I cannot handle the administrative staff.
